I think he is saying that, you don't want to bring the CR community over to other, better anime sites.

( Disclaimer I enjoy the CR community somewhat. )

Aero is just stupid for the sake of being stupid, not worth clarifying anything for him.

OH!

I felt the same way about a totally Japanese-Inspired site that was authentic as hell and it is awesome!

I only tell people about it over PMs because I don't want some of Crunchy-Douches to invade the site!

Its enough out of the URL for a modern browser to go straight there without stopping to ask google for directions.

Which is the point.


In other words, that member did nothing wrong.
Bootleg sites should not be referred to by name in the forums. Period, full stop.


On topic...


IS Crunchyroll the best site for Anime?


Hell No

This site is horrendous, countless Anime keeping getting removed, they ONLY have censored versions of Anime ...

Yes, for people who are happy to leech their anime, and for people for whom $5-$8 a month is a big deal, the bootleg sites have more selection, just like the guy on the NY streetcorner selling stolen watches can have an impressive selection at very attractive prices.

As far as only having censored versions ~ that's not exactly true. The simulcasts are the censored versions, obviously, since they are the broadcast cut, but when they get a back catalog titles, its normally the DVD cut.

What? No, it's not leeching or stealing links, it's embedding.

Its called leeching a stream because the site puts up a face as if they host the stream, but the stream is really hosted by another site ~ normally one of the big free video streaming sites in violation of their terms and conditions of use. They are like leeches sucking off the free video hosting sites.


The sites who host these videos can turn embedding off.

The sites that host these videos have embedding turned on for user generated content, not for bootlegs.


Also, the sites that are getting the most imbeds are themselves, fourth party uploads, who get their episodes from fansubs, who in turn get the videos from uploads in Asia.

The fansubs do not have the copyright on the original RAW, but they have a copyright on their own work. Thats a derivative work, so it requires permission of both the original creators in Japan and the fansub group to legally make a copy for distribution.


Also, please cite any law that states that embedding is illegal in the U.S., or even Asia for the matter, because it's only their law that we are concerned about in this scenario.

Where the popular leech streaming sites break the law is when their volunteers upload fresh copies of the bootlegs to the free video hosting sites because the copy they were leeching from before has been pulled for copyright infringement.


If you want to get as close to the original "illegal file upload", you would need to go talk to some fan-sub groups or know the original source directly. Again, information can be made illegal to distribute through licensing, but third party distribution of it can not.
Its legal to share references to files hosted somewhere else, and its the responsibility of the host, and for free upload sites the individual user, to ensure that copyright is respected.

That's the what the leech sites pretend they are doing: just sharing links to files that are already there. For legal purposes, they pretend that they are not supported by volunteers who illegally upload bootlegs onto free video streaming sites in order to have the links to share.

There are a lot of anime not on here but Crunchyroll is still definitely the best. It seems to be the only anime site where the videos are in HD quality. It also has groups, discussions, news etc. which other sites don't have.

Actually all sites have this.

People don't really care for news whenever they wanna watch anime, but that's what IGN is for.

And it's only in HD whenever you pay for this crap service, other sites such as Animefreak(Sometimes) let me stream in 1080P and the uncensored version to boot.

Sorry, I don't think this rule exists, it's cool that you're trying to defend Crunchyroll, but that is hardly the way to do it, how often do we talk about something and not mention it's name? That's frustrating for the members who don't know what we're referring too.

Blu Ray cut is the uncensored, the DVD version usually has a little added flair but the Blu ray version is the director's cut version.

And you think free with have a worse selection than a premium pricetag, since I'm sure The Chesswecake Factory selection is better than a Church's(Not the chicken place.... Religious place.)

Crunchyroll can defend itself, I'm concerned about the creators of the content that the site are bloodsucking off of.

As far as it being "frustrating" to talk about bootleg sites without naming them ~ tough. Don't spam the forum with the name to get to a bootleg site, period. Not on purpose, and not by accident.

A church would not be making food with ingredients shoplifted from the grocery store, so its not the same situation as a site that uses the work of the original creators of the anime, the work of the fansub group, and the work of the streaming site that is being abused by having the bootlegs uploaded onto it. Obviously its a lot easier for them to host a lot of bootlegs, since they let someone else do 99% of the required work.

People that are happy being freeloaders and hoping that someone else will hand over the money to keep the anime being made, of course there are bootleg sites with greater variety, which can update the RAW's as soon as the physical release comes out by ripping a new source of the DVD or BD. The leech streaming sites are like dandelions: unless SOPA passes, when one of those sites is shut down, it seems like two more spring up to take their place. Some people find Crunchyroll more convenient or higher quality for the series they have, some people don't ~ Your Mileage Will Vary.

For example, I don't watch anime to see drawings of lightly clad girls, whether of age or underage, so I don't give a damn whether its the broadcast cut or the DVD cut. For other people, its a BFD. Whatevers.

People who are actually in the market that the anime is being made for ~ the people that the freeloaders are freeloading off of ~ Crunchyroll is definitely one of the top two sites for streaming anime.

When CR gets Super Sentai and such, then it'll be the top anime site in my opinion.
